Thanks for posting, Jamesdak!

The center sharpness and contrast of this lens is outstanding. I had the Canon 400mm L f.5.6, and sold it when I got the Leica Telyt after doing a test of them side by side. That trade gave me $800 to have fun with

I also have a Novoflex Noflexar 400mm 5.6 for hand held photos that is even sharper than the Telyt. I gave $200 for it. I think it has 3 lens elements, so it's also sharper towards the edges. With live view focus these lenses will be re-discovered by a lot of people.

Thanks again for beatiful pictures and the demonstration.
